This is a guest post written by Keyzygirl from Key West, Florida. Laid back and vaping in paradise. Making the switch from traditional tobacco cigs to ecigs should be  fairly easy. The ecig offers the hand to mouth habit as well as providing us with nicotine so we don't have to suffer through withdrawals. Switching Over Gradually Sometimes people have a harder time with the switch over because their bodies are addicted  to more than just the nicotine. They need the tobacco alkaloids and other chemicals only found in traditional cigs. These people usually have to taper off and make the switch slower. Don't get discouraged. It's common and you are not failing. Every cigarette not smoked is a victory. Many people try to cut down more and more each day until they are able to comfortably begin vaping full-time. You will get there. Be patient with yourself. Carto Sampler Packs For others it a matter of finding a flavor or nicotine strength that is right for them. I always suggest sampler packs of cartos in a couple different strengths so you can try a few different flavors, save some money and find what you need. V4L offers quite a few different sampler packs. In the beginning samplers are your friend. Try as many flavors as you can. Preparation Is Key Make sure you have enough supplies. A lot of people give up because a battery dies or they run out of cartos. Don't let it happen to you. Keep enough supplies so that you are covered. With all the sales and discounts V4L offers there is no excuse not to have what you need. Remember, we always had money for smokes. This is no different. Stock up and have what you need handy. Running out of stuff is a poor excuse. You should have what you need to succeed. Support System The last is support. There is no need to feel that you are doing this alone.V4L has plenty of options for support. You can go to the Facebook Page or the V4L sub forum on ECF and V4L has a new forum you can link to from the site that is wonderful. There are people waiting to help you. They will answer your questions and congratulate you for every victory and milestone. It's like a support family. We are all here to help each other. No excuses. Just do it! VAPE ON!
